The week before Spring Break (Mar. 19 – 23) will be very exciting at South Oaks!  Artist KC Adams returns for another round of the Artist in the School Residency for classes 1JD, 1JW, KR, KDR1, KDR2.   Each of these classes will get to spend about 5 hours with the artist during the week to produce an original hand made pot from raw clay.  The pot is then fired, painted and glazed so the students have a wonderful keepsake.

We have also decided to run a Jump Rope for Heart event for all grade 1-4 classes.  It takes place on Thurs, Mar.22 with all grade 3+4’s in the gym from 9:15-10:40 and all grade 1+2’s in gym from 10:55-11:55.  Students will be assigned teams and take turns skipping for 1 minute at a time.  There will be extra ropes for those who want to skip more and there will be long ropes turned by adult volunteers for group jumping.  There will be music, draw prizes, a Gatorade station, decorations and some sweat!!

We look forward to a great week with the students as we prepare for Spring Break coming soon.
